I applied through an employee referral and the process took 4 weeks - interviewed at GE in July 2009.
Interview Details – This was an internal posting and was a replacement.
Location was Houston, TX
The group was relatively old and reported into corporate through Atlanta, GA
Six sigma experience was required
The interview process was fairly informal, since it was an internal posting. Scheduling was simple. HR seemed to have a big say and I have no clue why. The did not tell me that there would be no promotion in grade at all, but this would be considered as a lateral move. This would have saved me a lot of time.
Interview Question – How would you improve on the last person who held this position Answer Question
Reason for Declining – HR determined no pay increase, so this would be a lateral move. It would've been nice to know early on and not get stiffed at the end by HR
I applied through college or university and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at GE in November 2012.
Interview Details – Initial interview on campus, invited for 2nd-round. 1st and 2nd round were behavioral, mundane "What would you do if an employee did not want to follow an assignment you gave to him/her?" or "Why G.E., why OUR division...? SOOOO, tell me about yourself. Who ARE you?" Paired interviewers for 2nd round: Odd pairing of two employees at one interview in which one employee twice challenged questioning by the other. Awkward.
Interview Question – What would you do if you had an attendance problem because a bunch of employees made sure that they used all of their two weeks of sick leave every year, and their family maternity leave, and it cost the company $1,000 per employee per every two weeks for those who used the benefit? So, you're paying-out this money, but getting no production back for the company. How do you get people to show up for work instead of using their sick leave? Answer Question

Interview Question – What are your development needs? View Answer
Negotiation Details – No negotiation
I applied through a recruiter and the process took a day - interviewed at GE.
Interview Details – The interview process was a little odd with the senior manager obviously in a hurry and simply wanting his questions answered. More time was spent with other people that were temporarily performing the job until they could hire the target employees. It was apparent after talking with the younger engineers that they all worked very long hours. The hiring manager wanted to bring in a very seasoned person along with a junior person with the obvious intent for the senior to train his replacement.
Interview Question – No real difficult or unexpected questions came up. It was suprising that the intent of the senior training his less expensice replacement was so obvious. Answer Question
The process took a day - interviewed at GE in April 2011.

I applied through an employee referral and the process took a day - interviewed at GE in February 2011.
Interview Details – I was expecting the classic interview questions but it was anything but that I was asked more about myself and what I wanted to achieve in the company, very enjoyable experience during the interview process.
